Abstract:

This study of the curriculum for girls from the beginning of this century brings a fresh perspective to New Zealand educational history. Following the early triumphs of gaining the vote (and the right to qualify for university degrees), progress in women's education was not always straightforward. Social attitudes and provisions for girls at state schools in the first quarter-century established patterns for later generations to inherit and modify. In some areas, such as science and mathematics, inequalities for Maori girls lingered. Using a wide range of resources, ruth Fry traces the origin and development of the curriculum for girls to 1975, International Women's year. Those who, in 1893, achieved success in their campaign for equal voting rights were also concerned about educational opportunities for women. NZCER is very pleased to reissue It's different for daughters to celebrate the Centenary of Women's Suffrage in New Zealand.
